I think P2P_ASP_PROVISIONING command can be used to provide the cpt to be used for responding to a follow-on PD req by seeker.
Let me write down my proposal on this.There are two cases:
1. auto_accept == true
Seeker sends "cpt configured through P2P_ASP_PROVISIOING command" in PD request. Advertiser uses "cpt configured through P2P_SERVICE_ADD command" to choose (based on intersection with whatever received in PD req) a transport mode and sends it in PD response.
Seeker sends "cpt configured through P2P_ASP_PROVISIOING command" in PD request. Advertiser uses "cpt configured through P2P_SERVICE_ADD command" to choose (based on intersection with whatever received in PD req) a transport mode and sends it in PD response(though this will not be used for service establishment). Advertiser reports the received feat_capa to the ASP sitting on top of it.
The Advertiser's ASP will configure the preferred cpt through P2P_ASP_PROVISIONING_RESP command which should be sent in follow-on PD req. The seeker can choose one transport mode to be used with that service instance based on the intersection of cpt received in follow-on PD request and the cpt configured earlier through P2P_ASP_PROVISIONING command (this can be saved in p2ps_prov structure until then).
Let me know if you see some problem with the above.
